Flying The Hobby King Powered Glider, Bixler 2

Tyler: Here’s Phil and he’s flying the plane in twenty… almost twenty knot gusts with maybe a couple of bigger bursts of air and a lot of wind shear, which has no effect on this plane for an expert pilot, like Phil OK Phil, any words to the camera?

How to Fly a Powered Para Glider : Launching a Powered Paraglider

Welcome to Expert Village. My name is Hugh Murphy with Surf the Sky Paragliding. In this clip, we’re going to talk about the launch sequence.

How to Pilot a Glider or Sailplane : Ground Speed & Wind Speed While Flying a Glider

Hi! My name is Gene; I’m glider flight instructor on behalf of Expert Village. Now we’re headed back to the airport at 60 miles an hour against a 10 mile and hour and ahead wind, so our ground speed is approximately 50 miles an hour. How do you know wind speed? I’m just estimating it based on the weather and what I saw on the ground. The higher in altitude you go, the stronger the wind gradient usually is. If

How to Pilot a Glider or Sailplane : How to Deal With Stalls During a Glider Flight

Hi! My name is Gene; I’m glider flight instructor on behalf of Expert Village. Now another thing we teach is called stalls. The first stall we do is called a forward stall.

When there’s not enough pressure on the wings to support them, the nose drops and you start to fall and you recover. When you recover, you’re increasing your air

Sugar Gliders as Pets : What is a Sugar Glider?

Elizabeth is speaking on behalf of Expert Village. This clip is about sugar gliders, what they are and where they come from.

They are not rodents, so they don’t eat nuts, they are “insectivores”. They eat mostly insects, but they’ll also eat gums, fruits and vegetables and

Hi! My name is Gene; I’m glider flight instructor on behalf of Expert Village. One of the maneuvers we do is called boxing the weight. What we’ll do is we’ll go down through the prop wash of the tow plane, to a low tow position. We’ll swing out to the side and do a box around the tow plane, which demonstrates our ability to maneuver in the different parameters that we have to fly behind the tow plane. We’re coming
